Key Players 

Analysis 

Although Argentina has a much better and power-packed team on paper, yet it doesn’t make them clear winners in this contest. With Angel Romero being at his absolute best, the Paraguayans know just how to trouble Argentina as they have done the same previously in the past couple of months. 

Yet Lionel Messi and Rodrigo De Paul seemed to be at their supreme best to enable Argentina to get passed Uruguay in the second match at Copa America for this nation. The outcome of this match will be decided in the most clutched of ways possible.
